Well, reading through Jayne's last post got me all fired up about Bayer.
The Bayer chemical company, tirelessly promoting pollinator health.
As she hinted, it's ironic that about the only thing we found concerning bees (among all that lovely agriculture propaganda) came from the very company doing the most to kill them.
I get asked occasionally, what ever became of my bee kill controversy and that whole neonic hubbub?
The controversy continues. Yes, I have put down the megaphone for a while, but the neonic war rages on. I still stand by my original view. The outlandish notion that an insecticide is harmful to insects. Even (gasp) non target insects.
No amount of "bee care" and pollinator health propaganda will negate the fact that Bayer kills a lot of insects.
Coincidentally my vexation with Bayer happened about the same time a friend and blog follower sent us this little report from NPR.
Here's the corresponding article if you care to read.
Enough of that, lets change directions.
Time to head to the beach.
